It’s an ACC showdown on Saturday afternoon in Charlottesville. The Pittsburgh Panthers try and finish their regular season against a tough Virginia Cavaliers team.
It’s a match up of a good offensive team versus a good defensive team. This is the second meeting of the year between the two teams. Pittsburgh won the first match up 88-76.
For as experienced as the Pittsburgh Panthers are they really did have a very disappointing season. They come into this game with a 15-15 record and sit in 13th place in the ACC.
The Panthers have only won four games in conference play and come into this game riding a three game losing streak. In their last game they lost to Georgia Tech 61-52.
Most of the Panthers problems come on the defensive side of the floor. They give up 75.4 points which is 255th in all the country.
For the Panthers to win they need to try and push the pace in this game. The faster they can get the game speed at the better the chance for the Panthers to pull the upset.
The Virginia Cavaliers have had a very up and down season so far. They come into this game with a record of 20-9 and sit in 6th place in the ACC Conference.
After losing five straight games the Cavaliers have won two straight coming into this one. In their last game they held the North Carolina Tar Heels, who really can get up and down the court to only 48 points. To hold such a high scoring team to that low of total is very impressive.
The strength of the Cavaliers is on the defensive side of the floor. They only give up 55.3 points which is first in all the land. On the offensive side of the ball the Cavaliers are one of the slowest paced team in the country only scoring 66.6 points per game.
The Cavaliers are led on both sides of the floor by Senior guard London Perrantes. He is averaging 12.4 points, 3.9 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game.

Free Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Virginia Cavaliers NCAAB Prediction:
This game is going to come down to if the Panthers are able to push the tempo and speed up the Virginia Cavaliers like they were able to the first time the two teams met.
I don’t think they will be able to. I expect a grind it out low scoring game. Virginia will win the game but the Panthers will cover.
